Science Platform Sustainability 2030
The DKN actively supports the implementation of the national sustainability strategy in Germany through the Science Platform Sustainability 2030 as one of three Research Coordinators (together with SDSN Germany and IASS Potsdam). In the framework of the Science Platform, funded by the BMBF since 2017, the DKN supports the contribution of science to the implementation of the Agenda 2030 in political decision-making processes at the national level.
One of the Science Platform's aims is to identify central fields of action in order to stimulate, organize and moderate the dialogue between politics, business and civil society as well as with and within the scientific community. The ministries BMBF, BMU, BMZ, BMEL and the Federal Chancellery are in close exchange with the Science Platform. The platform offers an opportunity for exchange with national key players in the field of global sustainability. As Chair of the DKN, Daniela Jacob acts as one of three co-chairs of the platform, DKN Executive Director Sebastian Sonntag is ex-officio member of the Science Platform’s Steering Committee.
